Fairtrade Luxembourg and Luxembourg Slow Food present The True Cost

Wednesday, April 20, 18:30
Rotondes, Luxembourg
Tickets: €15 Slow Food Members, €20 General

The Rotondes in Luxembourg-Bonnevoie will host an evening centred around The True Cost documentary film on Wednesday 20 April 2016 at 18:30 that focuses on the theme of Ethical shopping.

The True Cost
film was created in several countries and goes behind the scenes of the clothing industry and prompts to ask the question "who pays the real price of our clothes?" It follows models on the catwalk only to then travel to the darkest slums as well as giving a voice to influential leaders such as Vandana Shiva (an Indian scholar, environmental activist and anti-globalisation author; she is also one of the leaders and board members of the International Forum on Globalization), Stella McCartney (English fashion designer) and Livia Firth (an Italian film produce who works with documentaries).

The True Cost, c’est l’histoire des vêtements que nous portons, des gens qui les fabriquent et de l’impact de l’industrie textile sur notre monde. Pendant des décennies, le prix des vêtements n’a cessé de diminuer, alors qu’en même temps les coûts humains et environnementaux ont augmenté de manière dramatique. The True Cost est un documentaire révolutionnaire qui pénètre dans les coulisses de cette industrie et qui incite à se poser la question : «qui paie le vrai prix de nos vêtements?». Le documentaire a été réalisé dans différents pays à travers le monde entier, commençant par les mannequins sur les podiums, puis voyageant jusqu’aux plus sombres bidonvilles. Le film donne la parole à des leaders influentes comme Vandana Shiva, Stella McCartney et Livia Firth. The True Cost est un projet sans précédent, qui ne laisse personne indifférent.

Before and after the screening of the documentary, the Luxembourg-based AKABO Fashion Bus will be available to those wishing to purchase their products of ecological clothes. The project, launched by Lyne and Karel Lambert, believes that it is important to make ethical and responsible choices in daily life.

Those attending the event will also be treated to food by the Steffen Traiteur which has created a menu based on flavours from textile producing countries with Fairtrade produce specifically for this event.

Anyone wanting to attend should make a reservation before Monday 18 April on

The event is being organised by Luxembourg Slow Food and Fairtrade, with the framework of the fair trade fortnight entitled Lëtz’ Step to Fairtrade. “Hungry Planet” is a series of events organised in collaboration with various organisations and Slow Food Luxembourg that address complex subjects in a more playful than traditional way.
